So naturally, the best way to celebrate the anniversary is with another limited-time event and associated loot boxes.

‘Overwatch’ turns one with more skins for your arsenal
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 May 2017, 2:37 pm

Last week, Blizzard answered the susurrous rising from Overwatch fans wondering whether the studio would celebrate the game's one-year anniversary: Yes, an event was in the works. (And there was much rejoicing.) To commemorate the game's arrival exactly a year ago, and in recognition of its wild critical and commercial success, Overwatch is launching a new event and releasing a Game of the Year edition for $40. But if you need convincing, the game will be free to play this weekend.

How Far Cry 5 can reclaim the open world crown
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 May 2017, 12:00 pm
Poor Ubisoft. They crafted this enormous open-world icon-riddled niche of their own, trod it into the ground while flogging it to death, and then other people came along, borrowed their ideas, and built superior games with them. In the last year, despite decent showings from Far Cry Primal, The Division, Watch Dogs 2, and Wildlands, […]

In case you haven't noticed, Vanity Fair magazine has released a sneak peek at its new Star Wars-themed issue, and the covers are pretty fantastic: Not only do they give us a closer look at the Star Wars characters we know and love, plus new faces from The Last Jedi, but HAVE YOU SEEN WHERE POE'S ARM IS?!?

Twitch adds video speed controls to slow down that amazing play
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 May 2017, 1:33 pm

Now that Twitch is making a bigger deal out of pre-recorded videos, it's competing more directly with services like YouTube -- and that means adding the kind of playback controls you take for granted elsewhere. Accordingly, the service has introduced a reworked video settings menu that adds speed controls. You can slow all the way down to 0.25X to relive a game-winning moment, or ramp up to 2X if you're skipping through the slow parts.

The Daily Grind: Do you swear by any urban legends in MMORPGs?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 May 2017, 8:00 am
When I first began playing Ultima Online as a newbie way back at launch, I remember watching everyone around me summoning ham with the Create Food spell and then eating it. The myth back then was that having an empty stomach caused everything from magic fizzles to combat whiffs to slowed experience gain. Over the years, multiple developers have examined the [...]

What would a western MMORPG be like if it didn’t include the classic saloon? A darn poor game, that’s what. Fortunately, Wild West Online confirmed that these taverns will be part of the game, although it’s uncertain what features they will offer. “Wild West Online is going to have saloons,” the team said on Facebook. “Rootin’ tootin’ saloons.
